Ronda Rousey will return as a sizeable betting favorite when she fights Amanda Nunes at UFC 207.

Ronda Rousey is back. The UFC announced this morning that the face of women's MMA will make her return to the Octagon at UFC 207, and will get a title shot against current champ Amanda Nunes. Whenever a big bout is announced, you can be sure that a betting line is going to follow, and this case is no different.

Rousey finds herself in a familiar place, despite the outcome of her last fight - she's a solid favorite (via BestFightOdds):

Only one site, Sportsbook, has dropped a line so far, but you can expect the rest of the big ones to quickly follow suit.

Rousey (12-1) defended her title six times before being knocked out by Holly Holm last November in Australia. This will be her first fight since that loss. Nunes (13-4, 6-1 UFC) defeated Miesha Tate in the main event of UFC 200 to claim the title.

UFC 207 goes down December 30th in Las Vegas. Rousey vs. Nunes will headline the card.
